    Help with Moving Outlook IMAP PST files.

    I have an issue moving my Outlook 2007 PST file. There are countless articles on how to do that, except they do not address an IMAP PST file. I have 2 PST files: one is created by my POP account from one provider, and second PST created by an IMAP account from a second provider. I want to share the Outlook files from a dual boot Vista/Win7 system. The POP PST file was easily moved a long time ago.
    However nothing I do will allow me to move the IMAP PST file. This file is in C:\Users\MyID\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\ and is called
    Outlmyid@mydomain.com (1)-00000009.pst.
    If you try and change the folder it doesn't stick. I moved it manually and tried to create a new PST file. It would not work.
    Does anybody know how to move an IMAP PST? You'll notice that the name is not one I provided but defined by Outlook based on the account email address.
    Thanks

I am hoping if I do this in both Vista and Windows 7 so I will be able to dual boot and run Outlook 2007 seamlessly no matter which OS I am in. The Outlook.sharing.xml.obi file does not move and so am not sure what effect this will have.
    A tip for others: If you run 64 bit OS, there is no 'mail' option in the control panel. It is in the 32 bit control panel.
